My daughter attended this school for almost three years. In that time period, she had a couple of amazing teachers and a few that were not so great. You can tell which teachers really care about their students and you can definitely tell which ones are just there for a paycheck. Some of them are quick to yell at the kids in a harsh tone and say rude things, and I've seen a teacher drag a child on the ground into the hallway by the arm. The front desk lady at the Kindergarten building (Mrs. Karen) is very sweet and helpful even though she is always super busy. I would say the shining star at this school is Mrs. Chapelle (sp?) She was my daughter's Pre-K teacher and is one of the most involved and nurturing teachers I've seen. She genuinely cared about my daughter and made her feel comfortable. You can tell she really cares about all the kids there. My daughter's Kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Cole and she is a great teacher. My daughter learned so much and is well past where she should be as a First Grader thanks to her. The school is pretty nice and large but it is in a bad neighborhood and if you leave anything valuable in your car it is likely to not be there when you come back out. I would recommend this school if you have a weird schedule since it is 24 hours, but if you can afford a school in a better area, I would do it. All in all I gave the school a 3 because they are pretty much equal in good/bad qualities.

I am a first time mom and when looking at my childs care options in the area, I was not really pleased with any of them. I found the MSOD and was impressed. I enrolled my daughter and she loved it! This is an environment where she thrived and loved going to school. The teachers were interactive and the facility was very nice. I dont know why it got so many negative reviews. No, you are not allowed to go into the class rooms because they dont allow anyone in the class rooms other than the teachers for security/ sanitary reasons. But you have a huge bay window to view your child through and watch their class. I never had any issues with how she was treated or things she was learning. She did get sick very often but it was her first time in child care and she did not build up her immune system. The school sends out weekly newsletters, pictures and has family nights scheduled at local restaurants. It is run like a school and your child will learn. Not every family is built for the montessori requirement, others might feel better having their child in a day care facility. I wanted my daughter to learn and benefit from being in child care, so this was the perfect facility for us. The only reason why she is at a new facility is because we moved accross town. We both deffidently miss MSOD!
My 2 year old started in November 2013 I LOVE THIS PLACE !! the area it self is not the BEST. but my child learned his FULL ABC's in 2 weeks. he loves the ladies. They are very loving. my kid will run and hug them before he leaves and hugs them when we get there. in other daycares he would cry and yell not to stay, and here he is always happy and excited. I only work like 4 minutes down so I go after his nap and take him to have lunch with me. And he is always excited to get back. I am very pleased with this place. One down side about it is that when kids are really sick, they still take them in. And my kid has gotten sick due to other sick babies. but I understand some parents don't have a choice. I would prefer them not take the sick babies in until a few days and with medication but oh well. other than that I really like the environment.
